Marine Le Pen’s Worldview: Oppose America, Embrace Iran
Le Pen’s worldview seems comes from the man sitting next to her, Aymeric Chauprade, who taught geopolitics at the Joint Defense College of the French army, until he was fired after writing a book in which he voiced the possibility that that the 9/11 attacks might have been part of a deliberate plot conceived in Washington to start an American war against the rest of the world.
Chauprade is being groomed to become the leader of the FN group in the European Parliament after the next French general elections.
Marine Le Pen, leader of theÂ Front NationalÂ (FN), the most likely winner of the upcoming municipal and European elections in France, held a press conference on January 22, in which she presented theÂ foreign policy of her party, including a passionate plea for France to break off its relations with Saudi Arabia and ally itself to Iran. Â (In other words, that makes LePen unelectable.)
The vote to curb immigration in Switzerland, though far closer than it ought to have been, has worried politicians all over the E.U., who grasp how much those whom they claim to represent, and whom they presume to instruct and to protect, cannot stand the immigrants — above all, far above all, the Muslim immigrants — who are not stopped from coming, who are not turned back relentlessly and on-mass, who are permitted to take advantage, by fraud and force, of everything that advanced Western states — because they are advanced and Western states — have constructed for the benefit of their own, only to find hostile and aggressive usurpers, in their midst and outbreeding them, exploiting everything welfare states offer, and to the fullest.
Let me repeat the fixed phrases I formulated a decade ago, and keep repeating: “The large-scale presence of Muslims in the countries of Europe has created a situation, for both the non-Muslim indigenes and for non-Muslim immigrants, that is far more unpleasant, expensive, and physically dangerous than would be the case without that large-scale Muslim presence.” Do you disagree? Even if you throw up your hands and wail that “there is nothing to be done” do you disagree? No, of course you don’t. (Hugh Fitzgerald)
